Hurtling Wings: Hurtling Wings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cast Spencer Tracy as Speed Kyle, master-builder of the hottest, fastest planes around. Then give the role of Cal Bradley, daredevil test pilot who pushes those planes to the limit, to a young hotshot like Tony Curtis. Add Grace Kelly as Speed’s blond bombshell daughter who fears that Cal will go too far—and you’ve got a winner.

And as far as Speed and Cal are concerned, winning is everything. Speed’s company is bleeding cash, and they need money quick. They’re competing in the upcoming National Air Meet, and to the victor goes the spoils—some extremely lucrative contracts.

But there’s sabotage in the air and love on the ground—and together they make a very volatile mix. If you love fast planes, fast action and unforgettable women, grab onto Hurtling Wings and hold on for dear life.

As a barnstorming pilot in the early days of aviation, Hubbard was dubbed “Flash” Hubbard by the aviation magazines of the day. He covered air meets and the latest developments in aviation, advising pilots on flying in adverse conditions. His unique and pioneering insight of flight streaks across the page in novels like Hurtling Wings.

Review:

"Death-defying aerial feats, prophetic dreams, and common thugs come together in this pulp tale by Hubbard. Cal Bradley meets with a series of self-destructing airplanes as he competes to win in the National Air Meet, which could gain him fame and lucrative contracts for his company. As he barely escapes death with each flight, Bradley discovers who is behind his technical failures. Though the story is antiquated, the audio production brings it to life through a full cast, sound effects, and musical score. As narrator, R.F. Daley provides a deep, hammy voice that embodies the nostalgic mood of most pulp fiction, and his emphatic delivery brims with energy. A Galaxy hardcover. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Step back in time this thrilling tale. Speed Kyle's company builds the best planes around, but now he's over-extended and needs a quick infusion of cash to save it. His fate rests on the aviation skills of Cal Bradley, daredevil racer and test pilot, whom he asks to fly for him at the upcoming National Air Meet.

The prize? Awarding of lucrative contracts for plane construction and international mail delivery. But what the duo is unprepared for are the kinds of high-risk stakes involved when an unscrupulous competitor enters the race determined to do anything to win. Suddenly sabotage and one beautiful dame may spell ruin as the planes prepare to take flight. "...These programs burst to life." Library Journal
